(New York, NY) ABXY is pleased to announce Reality Show a solo exhibition by Zeehan Wazed. Reality Show marks the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. It will be on view from November 14 – January 15, 2020. For this exhibition, Wazed presents new work in painting, sculpture, and creative new media, including a series of paintings activated by Augmented Reality.  

Like déjà vu through an Instagram filter, the works in this exhibition summon the suspicion we’ve seen them before in a dream (or was it on screen?) In each piece, Wazed blends fact and fiction, figuration and abstraction, fantasy and nightmare to create images that appear like snapshots of the contemporary subconscious. On this psychic battleground, hyper-realistic facts and figures sourced from digital news media burst, stretch, and tunnel through glowing tangles of geometric abstraction. Forest fires, warheads, walls, prescription pills, omnipotent eyeballs, creatures now extinct, robots, rubble and rising tides materialize out of rainbow reverie like involuntary hallucinations. What’s uncanny, in fact, is how much of this isn’t a dream.
